Wochit - April 17, 2018

As 87 million users had Facebook data compromised from a single Cambridge Analytica app.

Former CA employee Brittany Kaiser testified before a committee of U.K. Parliament members.

She said CA's culture was a bit 'Wild West' when it came to scraping and reselling user data.

She also said other companies were doing similar things, with different apps.
